Supersonic, not one of the most popular Bally machines of the era. We played one at a Campsie fruit shop back in 1981 every afternoon before work. I was at uni and had a casual night job at a supermarket. The machine we played was so worn that most of the playfield was not recognisable. The rest of the machine was good and strong and we knew the game rules, we had one leg propped with cardboard to get the right tilt for the top centre lane. Great challenge and play, the only negative was the slow wait for bonus accumulation at the end of each ball - typical of Ballys of the time.

If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.

I really love the back glass on this game having always adored the Concorde - arguably the most beautiful aircraft ever built.

Pretty funny review, enjoyed that!

A "sleeper" of a title. Better player than Playboy or KISS. I enjoy playing this game. I remember $6 Million Man, Power Play and Star Trek as some really great titles. Simple ruleset and heaps of fun to play. Entertaining review  ^^^
